A fantastic collection of cartoons by some of the masters like Gahan Wilson and Shel Silverstein and long time contributors to Playboy like Eldon Dedini, Doug Sneyd and Erich Sokol. Some are a product of their times and mores others are truly timeless. A great chronicle of the humor and art that Playboy has promoted since the 1950s.

As 50 year old birthday gifts go, this was a fun one -- the pictures were nice, but I read it for the captions.

Oh, and somebody hid a Shel Silverstein book -- Don't Bump the Glump! and Other Fantasies -- right in the middle. Kind of nice post modern take of hiding your children's book inside your Playboy.
i was just reading it for the cartoons lol
